A girl, as far as I can surmise. But I don't know. I hope someone does.

From wiki:

"Mora or Mara is one of the spirits from ancient Slav mythology. Mara was a dark spirit that takes a form of a beautiful woman and then visits men in their dreams, torturing them with desire, and dragging life out of them."

Could be this or something else.

In Slovene, mora (o pronounced as in moth) literally means nightmare.

Whoa, not only Canada ("wake me, please wake me"), check out the Critic lyrics:

6. Critic

all is calm, and all is right

you took the call, you took the fight
i'm finished here, i'm on to the next
this time, this time, this time, this time, you call
all you are, is all you are

all is cold, and all is dead
it's time, it's time, i need, i need you

mora

help me end my nights in here
and help me get this water clear
all is calm and all is lost
you call, you call, you call, you call me

mora

critic... you're the critic... you're the critic

in the night i lay awake

i know it's cheating baby,
but i know i have a right
and in the dawn i see the question
a bleeding wrong forcing right

sometimes night i can't stop thinking
and i'm calling it a soul strike

yep I can approve of that.

Mora is the slavic equivalent of the succubi demon and is as well used in the context of having a nightmare.

I think the interpretation of those lines where this word is used, is left to each his own

Wasn't Mora a giant moth or an alien ?

Am I mixing different things there ?

(the definition of Mora is pretty much the equivalent of a succube right ?)

Which slavic languages? In slovene "moth" is "molj" or "veÅ¡ča" (if you'd write that in german, it would look like "weschtscha" :lol:), whereas "mora" is literally "a nightmare" in general, without the connection to a particular form of nightmare which then "succubus" would be.
